Symptoms:

  • Burnt Forward clutch
  • Poor shift quality
  • Wrong gear starts
  • Delayed engagement

Cause:

The 1-2 accumulator piston wears at the pin bore due to contact with the steel pin.

Correction:

Sonnax accumulator piston has a longer pin contact surface area to reduce wear on the piston and prevent cocking.

GM vehicles with 125 or 3T40 transmissions may have problems with burnt forward clutches, delayed engagements, poor shift quality or wrong gear starts due to loss of oil pressure through the accumulator circuits and worn piston pin bore. Continuous oscillation and spring loads cause the piston to wear or cock in the housing. This allows fluid to cross leak into other circuits and the piston to cock in the bore. The Sonnax accumulator piston kit 75912-01K has a larger piston-to-pin contact area to reduce wear and prevent cocking.

• Longer piston pin contact surface area reduces wear on the piston and prevents cocking

• Piston increases the preload on the accumulator spring for firmer shifts
